Sydney Bihn, an aerospace engineering student at the College of Aeronautics and Engineering, was selected from an elite pool of applicants to attend a three-day event for the nation’s top engineering, computer science, design and business students.
Michael Parker, a senior Mechatronics student, was recently accepted into a year-long internship, in computer-aided sheet metal design for Bessamaire HVEC, a Heating, Ventilation, and Evaporative cooling company.
We would like to take a moment to brag about senior mechatronics student Laurel Praeter. Making the most of her time at Kent State’s College of Aeronautics and Engineering, she’s consistently looking for new experiences to grow her portfolio.
Aviation Management Student is Ahead of the Curve. Sai Chittimalla, an aeronautics senior became the first Kent State University aviation management student to pass the American Association of Airport Executives: Airfield Operations Certification exam, and in record time.
Cassette Le’Shaunne Pitmon, a junior in the air traffic control program and a double minor in aircraft dispatch and unmanned aircraft systems was chosen as a McNair Scholar for Kent State University’s Ronald E. McNair Post-Baccalaureate Achievement Program.
Steven Westlake, a senior mechatronics student at the College of Aeronautics and Engineering has worked with Darwin Boyd, Ph.D., to design industrial robots and considers Mechatronics II to be his favorite class.
As an aeronautics major with a concentration in flight technology, Alex Johnson spends a lot of time around airplanes. In addition to working at the Kent State University Airport, she recently spent the majority of her day for four days in a 172 Cessna flying across county in the Air Race Classic (ARC).
Junior applied engineering foundry technology student Samantha Battaglia is one of the most involved students at the College of Aeronautics and Engineering (CAE). She serves as a mentor and volunteer in college activities and creates engagement events on her own with a special interest in educating and encouraging girls to pursue careers in engineering.
Sara Roman, junior mechatronics engineering major, took part in an internship with NASA at the John Glenn Research Center in Cleveland as a High Data Rate Architecture (HiDRA) thermal and mechanical design intern.
My favorite class is Introduction to Sustainability, because it shows students how they relate to the environment and how they can positively/negatively impact it, but also it helps develop the skills and mindset necessary for students to achieve a cleaner future.
